“Exercise? But my neck (or back) hurts!”
Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries hears you! Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries knows your back
hurts. Many Manchester chiropractic patients come for just that reason:
Manchester back pain. Back/Neck pain relief - whether because of Manchester spinal stenosis or a Manchester disc
herniation whether it is in the back/neck only or extends
down the leg/arm and into the foot/hand - is possible through our combined
effort: Manchester chiropractic care including spinal manipulation and
Manchester SPINAL STENOSIS AND LEG PAIN
Low back pain patients with spinal stenosis and leg pain show
decreased cross sectional area of the spinal extensor muscles and fat
infiltration on MRI. What does that mean? There is a
a loss of muscle power in the low back when pain is present.
(1) One of the causes of low back pain is lumbar hyperlordosis (sway back). A
type of therapeutic exercise known as Perez-Olmedo revealed improvement
in 60% of youths with hyperlordosis. (2) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries checks for
such causes and has just the exercise to tackle the issue.
Manchester NECK PAIN
Neck pain patients experience less neck pain and improved
dysfunction neck posture and range of motion with thoracic spine manipulation.
The relief lasts up to 6 months later.
(3) This goes to show that spinal manipulation is an essential
component in Manchester pain relief treatment plans.
Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries is skilled at setting
these up for our Manchester chiropractic patients!
Manchester BACK PAIN
Chronic low back pain patients with weak stomach
muscles were cared for
with abdominoplasty (a “tummy tuck”). This
tightens and stabilizes the ab muscles by making the muscles work better and
increase intraabdominal pressure to
make them better spine stabilizers. Such abdominal strengthening should be considered
a way for patients with weak ab
muscles and intractable low back pain who have failed conservative management. (4)
Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries can recommend you some individualized
exercises that will be just right for you before resorting to a surgery!
INTERMITTENT CLAUDICATION (cramp-like pain in the legs upon
exercise like walking)
Peripheral artery disease patients with intermittent
claudication were cared for with a home-based exercise program a
supervised exercise program and usual-care control. Both exercise programs had
patients exercise with a step activity monitor for 12 weeks. The patients continued with these programs which both proved useful
in improving claudication measures comparable to a standard
supervised exercise program. Such exercise seems to be more successful
in increasing daily activity in the
community setting than supervised exercise. (5) If you are one of those Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries
is prepared to be your community!
LOW BACK PAIN
Persistent non-specific low back pain drives some
Manchester back pain sufferers mad…with good reason! Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries
gets it! Compared with slight or other interventions Pilates is a
good option to try to decrease back pain and ease disability. (7)
Manchester POST-SURGICAL BACK PAIN
Even after back surgery, exercise eases pain. Aerobic
exercise beginning one month after first time
single-level lumbar microdiscectomy resulted in a more distinct
functional improvement than home exercise. (8) Whatever it takes to help decrease
back pain is the important factor. Listen in to a PODCAST that shares how Cox Technic helps relieve post-surgical back pain. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries will help you explore
